I always found the ura version (which is what we are talking about here) was easier to perform if uke was doing his best to recover. Looks better, feels better - makes a better show.

Surely the criteria should be whether the irimi nage is proficient andc onforms to aiki principles rather than whether it looks good, feels better[for uke /tori?and a better? show etc?cheers, Joe,
